My inspiration for this photo of “old shoes” came from all of the memories that “all star converse” shoes can have. When i look at a pair a shoes, I remember certain events that happened while wearing these shoes. this battered pair of converse shows that they have been through a lot and hold many memories. While shoes are an inanimate object, they can represent the lives of many. Although they are treasured, they are also torn and battered.
